European Stocks Come Off Higher Levels On Trade Uncertainty, End Mixed

(RTTNews) - European markets saw some brisk buying midway through the session on Tuesday, but failed to hold gains and ended mixed due to uncertainty about a potential U.S.-China trade deal.

Markets had gained in strength after a cautious start, riding on some encouraging earnings reports and fairly good automobile sales data. However, stocks lost their way in late afternoon trades and gave up gains.

The pan European Stoxx 600 declined 0.12%. Among the major indices, the U.K.'s FTSE 100 and Germany's DAX ended higher by 0.22% and 0.11%, respectively. Switzerland's SMI gained 0.18%, while France's CAC 40 ended down 0.35%.

Among other markets in Europe, Austria, Belgium, Finland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland and Sweden declined.

Czech Republic, Greece, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine closed higher, while Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Portugal and Spain ended flat.
